I am seeking inspiration for a loft ladder to gain access to my loft.
The ceiling is 8 feet, I have enough room above to make it from one
piece instead of those folding things.
I don't want to be buying expensive hardware like hinges etc. Has anyone
seen pictures of similar ideas.? I was thinking of maybe a
counterbalance weight to reduce the effort of raising and lowering.
You yanking our chain? Hinges, expensive? Hell, if all you wnt is
access, a lift up panel, and a stepladder would work.
Only those who have the patience to do simple things perfectly will
acquire the skill to do difficult things easily.
